important may be at this moment, the state of florida already 41% of precincts reporting because they do so automatically, and largely because -- there are two times in florida. the eastern time, we all know this from the 2000 election, the eastern time zone has been closed for an hour. the panhandle, which means fort walton beach, panama city, pensacola, all the counties around the panhandle had just closed, so their numbers are not yet in. the old saying about florida is the for the north you go, the father southern you get, which means the panhandle is republican territory. the southeast part of the status democratic territory. what decides florida is the interstate corridor that stretches from tampa to orlando and all the way to daytona beach and some small communities in between. that area there will decide florida. that area is in. the panhandle is just coming in. let's look at florida again. it is lopsided at the moment. you can see or you will be able to see in a moment that in a state of florida with 41% of precincts reported, there is a lopsided lead at the moment for barack obama
the presidential race. this is at c-span.org/camp aign2012. joining us from florida is representative debbie washerman schulz, and the chair of the democratic national committee. thank you for being with us. >> joining us is a reporter for politico. thank you for being with us. let me begin by asking about florida. he said the president will win your state. breakdown the demographics of florida. where will the president do well and mitt romney? howlet's just talk about a to early voting has been going. you do that combined with the absentee voting. going into early voting, we cut the absentee ballots by 85%. going in they had about 36,000 ballots when normally they have more than two wondered thousand ballots more than us. when early voting ended yesterday we had 104 more democrats that have cashed out. we have run circles around them because of our very strong and ground game. there has been an explosive turnout of democrats in major counties. yesterday we had single day records and major counties around the state of florida. going into election day weekend see in my state that the enthusia
.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was cold out and thinking back four years ago and thinking about everyone turning out for him last night. he is hoping for big turn-outs in big battlegrounds. i got off the phone with one of the president's senior
to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> e see how all those states were blue? his confident predictions that john mccain was going to win all those states in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he was going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in the last four days of the campaign. there are patterns to how presidential elections end. some of the same stuff happens every four years. specifically, in 1992, the republican candidate was poppy bush. he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and then the next day, he lost pennsylvania. the next election, 1996
cain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we'll think we got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. you know, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain and we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, as we learn that john mccrane surprised them and won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his political enemies, just gratuitously throwing that in. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we think we have a good shot at virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio,
are making a final push. obama has florida, colorado and ohio on his schedule. this morning mitt romney was in des moines and just spoke in cleveland, ohio to supporters. later today he will be rallying in pennsylvania and virginia. we'll have all the action from the campaign trail. we have a team of reporters in the battleground states covering all the angles. meanwhile, team obama is making its final push for votes today. this hour he is expected in the battleground state of florida where he is expected to speak shortly in hollywood, florida. brianna keelel is already there. brianna, what is the message the president is expected to deliver there? >> reporter: this, fredricka, is going to be his closing message. he is going to be telling voters you may not agree with everything that i've done, you may be impatient with the pace of change, but stick with me, my economic policies are working and we're heading in the right direction. as mitt romney has tried to frame himself as the candidate of real change, barack obama has kind of gone, no, not so fast, that is not mitt romney and he's t
't be higher. >>> time toure. technology's come a long way since tim russert famously wrote florida, florida, florida. but what hasn't changed is the path to victory, making the sunshine state our state of the day. >> all that plus the image emblematic of what barack obama wanted from his presidency. it took four years and an act of god to get it. it's thursday and you're in "the cycle." >>> it's another day of slow progress as nearly two dozen states pick up the pieces from sandy. the death toll now stands at more than 80. also rising is the costs. now estimated at north of $60 billion. that's not hard to consider when you look at the incredible damage especially along the new jersey coastline. homes ripped off their foundations. many have simply vanished. carried in full right out to sea. those amazing images continue to pour in. hard to watch and simply hard to believe. nbc's michelle franzen begins our coverage this hour. she's back for us in toms river. michelle is the only reporter to make it into the neighboring community of seaside heights. so tell us, michelle, what you saw there. >
parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters and he's doing so by dismantling governor romney's rationale in this race one line of the obama argument, i am the guy you know. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i've made, you may be frustrated sometimes at the pace of change, but you know that i say what i mean and i mean what i say. you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i know how. >> we know what this president believes. but governor romney -- >> with these guys, it all depends on who you're talking to, where you are, what time of day it is, what state you're in, what the polls say. how the weather is. it
will be decided, president obama leads in five of them. only holds on an average lead in florida. this is why mitt romney will not give up on campaigning until the bitter end. he's back on the stump tomorrow. in a last-ditch effort to pull off a shocker in these two states. it's not surprising. there are efforts underway to make it harder for people to vote. you're seeing the result of manmade voter suppression. lines for early voting stretched around corners in ohio. make no mistake, this is a calculated decision to limit access to polls. ohio secretary of state john husted has been the focal point of a lot of criticism. he approved the restriction on early voting around the state. the same is happening in florida. voters waited as late as 2:30 a.m. to cast a ballot this weekend. voters reported wait times of up to, i cannot believe this number, seven hours. more people voting in democratic-leaning areas is bad for the gop. republican governor rick scott reduced number of early voting days and was able to defeat a court challenge to uphold his ruling in most of the state of florida. republicans,
in florida too close. virginia too close. pennsylvania that will be a close one, one way or the other. in new hampshire, that is a state that favored for barack obama but too early to call, but alan on that idea of how much time you give to turn things. >> it is what you focus owe had an economy that was in terrible shape, caused somewhat under the bush administration. he should not get total blame. neil: a lot to blame him, a good plurality say, you know -- >> this was due to the housing market. that started problem quite frankly dramatically under the previous mr. clinton,. neil: community reinvest. , we raised to 50%. >> we started out 10%, and it was raised to 50%. that is what caused it, not just the banks but government intervention. but back to jobs, you say job is number one problem you do not spend your time on health care, that not adding jobs. neil: part of the thing in exit poll, a lot of people like this healthcare. a lot of them like it. >> they may like it because they have not yet paid for it but they will pay for it businesses have to pay more money for it you will have to pa
, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
, the right to vote. the most contentious battles are waged in the swing states of ohio and florida. in miami this weekend voters waited up to nine hours to cast in person absentee ballots only to have election officials shut down the polls because they claimed not enough have resources or staff to be able to complete the job. one voter shut out after waiting two hours with their grandson told the miami herald: after protests and those calls to let us vote, the polls did reopen and people voled until 1:00 a.m. but governor rick scott refused to extend any early voting any further, and wouldn't you know it, the areas with the longest lines, maim dade, orange, palm beach, broward county, all of those counties, shocked i know, lean democratic and they all went for the president in 2008. those voters have to contend with more than just voting regulations and ornery officials. unofficial poll watchers, many trained by the tea party group true the vote, those poll watchers are going into predominantly afarry can american areas searching for fraud. volunteers handing out bottled water to voters who
% of the precincts reporting. barack obama 51%, mitt romney at 48% of the vote. >> now to florida, which is another huge state. 29 electoral votes up for grabs here. 89% of the precincts reporting. barack obama leading 51% to mitt romney, 49%. virginia tilting mitt romney's way. >> we're also keeping an eye on key races in the house and senate tonight. >> reporter: after a record amount of money spent on house and senate races, and some pretty big controversies, it all comes town to tonight. i'm joined by the managing editor of the hill. the headline right now, it's projected, republicans will retain control of the house. >> that's right. >> reporter: what's your reaction to this? it's not unexpected. >> it's not. it was an uphill projection for the democrats. they needed 25 seats, that was just too much of a climb for them. >> reporter: 38 democrats so far, 71 republicans have taken seats in the house. >> democrats were banking that medicare was going to be a big issue. democrats said the republicans were going to betray the tea party extreme. the strategy just did not bear fruit. >> reporter: the
states. ohio and florida. the latest nbc news "wall street journal" m.arist poll shows president obama holding on a six-point lead among likely voters in the buckeye state. meanwhile in florida an creamily tight race there two points separating the candidates with the president ahead in the sunshine states 49 to 47%. so much of this race, of course, depends on these two states. ohio and florida. for some insight i want to bring in our nbc news deputy political editor. let's start with ohio good friend. if mitt romney can't win in ohio what would his path to 270, what would his path to victory have to look like. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got
felt their chances were better in ohio than say virginia or florida was because of the auto industry. as you've mentioned before, one in eight jobs in this state are connected to the auto industry. the auto bailout is very popular. the president never missed a chance on a campaign trail in ohio to talk about how he had gotten the auto industry back on track and how governor romney opposed that bailout. >> thank you very much. we have breaking news of this moment. cbs news projects that mitt romney will carry the state of south carolina. no great surprise. mccain won that state by 9% in 2008, but we can now project that mitt romney will carry the state of south carolina. bob and nora, state of ohio again. it's so critical tonight. it might be said that if the president wins reelection tonight, he may have won it in 2009 when he signed that auto bailout. >> it very well might be the case. i still don't understand why governor romney went to cleveland today. this is the most heavily democratic part of the country and one of the most heavily democratic counties. maybe he was just trying
. >> we're waiting on florida right now florida is still too close to call. this of course is one of the t hotly contested states. florida too close to call. the polls are closed in florida. onto illinois where obama has taken illinois. as you can see there illinois is going to the president. maine also going to the president tonight. nbc news projecting president obama is the winner of maine. onto maryland where we are also seeing president obama take maryland. and that of course ten electoral votes. >> interesting. the state of massachusetts governor romney's home of course as governor at least being called for barack obama. also home to a very high profile senate race between senator scott brown and elizabeth warren of harvard. the woman who set up consumer protection bureau. mississippi is called for mitt romney. six electoral votes there and the state of missouri too early to call. >> new hampshire, we have been waiting on another hotly contested state. too close to call in new hampshire so far. this is four electoral votes and one of the hotly contested states new hampshir
at this hour, he's in florida right now heading to ohio next and then ending the day in colorado. republican mitt rom any kicked off his day at an event in des moines, iowa. after that it was on to cleveland, ohio. white house correspondent brianna keeler is in hollywood, florida. where the president should any moment now arrive. he's a little late. it's about 20 minutes past the hour or the moment that people, a huge crowd were expecting to hear from him. what's the holdup? >> reporter: well, you know, he's got a lot of places to go, 20 minutes behind not really surprising. i think that's been happening a lot the last few days, fredericka. but yeah, we'll be keeping an eye out when he speaks so if you want to stop in and see what he's saying, for the last few days leading up to election day, he's concentrating quite a bit of his time in ohio, and also in wisconsin and iowa that midwestern fire wall. and as his campaign sees it, if he does sure ohio, they feel that he will be able to keep the presidency out of the hands of mitt romney. of course florida is also very important. wh
. they will be in florida and virginia, two states that you would assume by now, they would have secured. or they assumed by now they would secure. they understand that the traditional or the battleground states on which we have been focusing are not working out for them. we are even or ahead in all of them. now they are looking for somewhere, desperately looking for somewhere to try to dislodge some votes to win the election. i can tell you that's not going to happen. >> chris: you bet your mustache on the president winning pennsylvania. how secure is your mustache today? >> the 96 time we see each other, chris, i guarantee you that mustache will be right where it's today and where it's been 40 years, so you know how serious that bet was. >> chris: the key now is turnout and the obama campaign has talked for years about how strong your ground game is. i want to look at ohio and what the romney camp says is happening in early voting and absentee ballots. let's putting the numbers up on the screen. it's a little complicated. they say, this is the romney camp, says that 557,000 ohio democrats that voted or
. who is actually showing up, who is casting ballots, and, states like ohio, iowa, nevada, florida, we're doing very, very well. what they are doing is comparing this to 2008, and you and i have had the discussion. i am not suggesting we will win by the same margin we won in 2008. and, they are comparing themselves to john mccain, who had virtually no ground operation in many of these states, so, yes, they will do better than john mccain did and we may not do as well as we did in 2008, but, we are doing plenty well and well enough to win the race. >> chris: let me ask you, briefly, about florida, where president obama is down by more than a point, in the polls. and yet you are making your final advertising by the campaign there. in florida. why not in the state you must win? >> well, first of all, we feel very competitive in the state of florida. there have been a spate of polls, in fact in all of these polls, battle ground state polls that came out the last 48 hours, we are ahead in 90% of them, including florida. and there were a couple of mixed polls in florida, but we are very plea
en colorado, florida >>> y una nueva encuesta indica que 73% apoya al presidente y 24% a romney y 53% de los latinos estÁn mas entusiasmados en votar que en el 2008 como el caso de javier molina. >>> votÉ por obama, porque quiero ayudar a mi familia >>> muchos se preguntan cÓmo aparentemente obama tiene ventaja en un estado como nevada con el desempleo mÁs alto de la naciÓn, mÁs del 11% y donde al igual que la florida es el mÁs golpeado, para el empresario javier barajas entre los hispanos una razÓn es porque le tienen peemiedo romney >>> de votar por alguien que vaya a votno haga nada o tener peedz votmiedr votar por alguien que no hace. en nevada los republicanos se quejan de fraude electoral y problemas con las mÁquinas en las urnas, mientras fÁcil florida son los demÓcratas cl qe quejan por el gobernador rico scott redujo el tiempo. >>> sabemos que el demÓcrata vota mÁs temprano que el republicano, leso le ayuda muchÍsimo a obama. la florida es un estado muy reÑido donde el voto latino esÁa mÁs dividido. >>> florida tiene la imagen que el vo taeplante latino es p
the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come ro
but the lines as long as six hours in florida have led to a major development in that state. and we will have a lot more on that later. in these final 48 hours, this race has become an all-out sprint. today president obama chris crossed the country starting in new hampshire. flying to florida and ohio for events. and ending the rally in colorado. governor romney began in iowa and held events in ohio and pennsylvania. he will end his day in virginia. president obama whipped voters into fever pitch on the trail. today, before record crowd of 14,000 in new hampshire. and then last night, it was another ruckus rally under virginia. >> now it's all up to you. it is up to the volunteers. it is -- it's up to somebody knocking on the door. it is up to someone making a phone call. it's up to someone talking to their mom or dad or their wife or husband or grandma or grandpa. and that's how democracy's supposed to be. it is up to you. you've got the power. and that's why i need you, virginia. don't get tired. don't get weary. if you're willing to knock on some doors with me and make some phone calls for
on election eve is just so competitive. mitt romney is racing from florida in the morning to new hampshire tonight with stops in virginia and ohio in between. the president is due to speak in madison, wisconsin, later this hour, after which he is off to ohio, to iowa and then finally he plans to settle down in chicago for the night. cnn's dan lothian is waiting for the president in madison. they often say you can tell that time is short and the race is tight by the caliber of the warm-up acts. it's not all about the talking but a bit about the singing. get me up to speed on who the big acts are today. >> reporter: that's right. it's bruce springsteen who will be warming up for the president. he's going to perform for about 30 minutes before the president steps onto the stage. and then we're told that he will be traveling on air force one with the president as he heads to his next stop in columbus, ohio. will also go go to the third stop in ohio. last night was stevie wonder and other performers over the last few weeks to draw the big crowds to these events but also to energize the base to

with 303 electoral votes, florida is still up in the air although the president does have a lead there right now of half of a percentage point. now, it's important to note that obama took nearly every swing state, including colorado, ohio, pennsylvania virginia, and wisconsin. those last three really contributed to his win and to the fact that we were able to call the race relatively early last night. if you remember yesterday, there was speculation that the count could go on for several days in the event of a close race. the popular vote is very close at 50.2% to 48.2, just a difference of two points there but with nearly 100-point spread in the electoral vote, it's really no contest. congressional seats democrats did not gain control of the house, which was to be expected, but they did maintain control of the is that the, picking up seats in indiana and massachusetts, a big win there for elizabeth warren against scott brown. we're still waiting on results from montana and north dakota but departments have the lead right now. the two independents, king from maine and sanders fro
